No Regrets :)

Niben, 02.02.2018
This is my first PRS guitar purchase, I have played a few over the years and was always impressed but never took the plunge .... until now.

Being a southpaw I needed a new guitar and the choices are limited for lefty's especially in Europe, however Thomann stocked a variety of left handed guitars and this one caught my eye. I own a couple of Fender Strats and an Gibson LP custom and was looking for something kinda different from those 2 brands and PRS offered the looks and package I wanted.

Pro's-
1: Sound and Feel are usually the most important factors for me when purchasing a guitar and this guitar ticks both boxes for me. The humbuckers are nice and clear and work well with both clean tones and are also fine when you kick on the lead or distortion sounds. It feels natural in my hands and feels kinda worn in already if thats a thing.
2: Tone, while this is subjective and each person has a different preference, this guitar instantly inspires me when I pick it up. It has tunes in it if you know what I mean. Sustain is great and it just resonates so naturally which offers subtle nuances to my playing.
3: Build quality, this should be a given especially on a guitar around the ¤1000 mark but Im glad to see I found no issues at all. No finish issues or dings on the body or neck. Maple veneer is nice and looks beautiful up close.
4: Setup, this was apparently setup in UK by PRS before being sent to the retailer. The setup was practically perfect, neck was nice and straight and the action was just the way I like it personally, 2 minutes of personal tweaks, a tune up and it was perfect. It holds its tune so well Im kinda stunned as a long time Gibson LP player this is new to me.
5: Nice Gigbag included with decent padding and well built, this should help with keeping it safe during transport in my car. Would like a hardcase for it but I understand at that price they need to make sacrifices in order to keep it affordable. I would rather a shortcut taken with the case/ gigbag than with the guitar itself.

Cons:
I have nothing negative to say about this guitar, normally I find an issue with something but so far this guitar is exceptional. I am extremely happy with it and hope its parts of my collection for years to come.

Conclusion:
If you are thinking of buying a Custom 24 SE then I would say go right ahead you wont regret it. Its ¤970 but I have bought more expensive guitars in the past and have not been as impressed with the overall package. The play-ability is the main strong point of this guitar, it wants you to play it often and I find its a guitar I can play for hours without getting fatigue in my hands. So if your on the fence I would say go ahead and take the risk you wont regret it.

Service was exceptional from Thomann, nice and straight forward and I think this will be the place I buy most of my musical equipment from now on.

SE without lame compromises

Carsten037, 25.12.2017
Anyone who has always been interested in the sound of a PRS, but has received the breath of the price of the original, now gets a decent alternative. Not quite as bold in the sound picture as the original, but overall, there is little bad thing to say. And as Lefthand sometimes to be able to see other colors than the usual black, white or sunburst is all the more enjoyable. More in the future.
